“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day,” 2 Timothy 1:12.
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not,” John 1:11.
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand), ” Matthew 24:13-15.
“Some of you are set apart. Some of you are set apart to be a witness for suffering in the days that are to come.
For, I have told you that the days will be growing increasingly darker. And now that great cloud is approaching; it can be seen just out on the horizon.
For have you not known that I came into this world and I suffered for all humanity?
I walked many long roads, and healed the sick, and cast out demons. But even unto My own, I was received not. And so, because I suffered, you also will meet the same opposition.
But as I have said before, fear not, for I have overcome the world.
But I tell you indeed, this world will fall into even greater darkness. There will become an even greater separation between those who believe in Me and those who do not. For the great enemy of your souls is at work.
The great deceiver has many agents at work and they have whispered their lies into the ears of many. But those of you who know Me and My Word, will shed My Light abroad to them.
Many are called and yet few are chosen.
Some are called as a witness to stand upon these last days. Some will fall, and yet others will endure unto the end.
For there will be trials beyond measure that you must endure, and there will be times when you will feel like giving up.
For you will be hated by some, for many have loved the darkness rather than the light. But your light will shine abroad to many more. And that light will expose the deeds of darkness.
But even so, some of you will be thrown in prison because the world will not know Me.
For the world will be rocked back and forth and men will give into the beast system.
The one doomed for perdition will take over the world with his agenda, but many of you will be hidden from him.
And then at the time appointed I will come, and all eyes will be upon the One whom you have pierced.”
